BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Daniel Romanchuk has won the Men's Wheelchair Division race at the 126th Boston Marathon.
This is Romanchuk's second win at the Boston Marathon, he previously made history in 2019 when he became the youngest ever men's wheelchair division champion at 20-years-old. Romanchuk finished this year's Boston Marathon with a time of 1:26:58, just over five minutes more than his previous best.
Romanchuk finished second at last year's race behind Marcel Hug, who dropped out of this year's race early Monday morning. Neither the B.A.A or the Swiss athlete's team specified why he dropped out.
The Illinois native won two medals for Team USA at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo. He won gold in the 400-meter race and Bronze in the Marathon.
